VienneMilano is blessing my blog once again, with their Priscilla Holdups! I gotta say I do love their brand; not only do they have some amazing styles, but their quality is just out of this world.
This will be blog 1 of 2 as I have another coloured pair to do a mini review on too!
Colour: Black / Fatal Red

I’m trying to make the most out of the dresses I have before I start shopping for identical ones! This one has been tucked away for some time, so I thought I would bring it out to play with my holdups today! I paired with my platform heels 🙂
From The Website: Make a statement in red. From work to play and everything in between, PRISCILLA Red is a fabulous pair of stockings to take any outfit up a notch, and to ensure that all eyes are on you!

The Packaging: when you purchase from them, it comes in a packaging bag, and out it pops looking all pretty. These are pretty basic but the best thing about these is that you get to see the whole thing through the clear packaging.
There is a small label at the bottom describing the pair inside, but I love the fact that you can see the bands and the legs before you even get inside.
When you do get in, these are folded horizontally around card ready to get on.
On The Legs: can I just say how much I love that band contrast to the 15 denier leg!!
It’s simple but so damn effective… it’s unreal!
The quality of these are just amazing; they don’t snag easy (not that I have snagged a pair yet) and there is a gorgeous amount of stretch to them. I can say these are durable as the previous pairs I have are still going strong!
The fit of these are true to size, and to be honest these could fit a size medium if they wanted to. I thought they were stretchy enough if you are in-between sizes.
The feel of them are so silky soft, and so nice to rub your hands up and down too. It’s like a smooth coating they put on top, which is just amazing and to be honest, they really do look like a luxe pair!
The contrast band is what makes these; I love how they can be worked in so many ways – work, casual, dinner date, show them off a little with shorter dresses etc. It gives you the option to cover or expose them, depending on your preference creating an effortless statement piece!
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes are reinforced; as you can see with that strip going across front and back. There is plenty of wiggle room in these for your toes to move and feet to breathe. I never normally have any issues with the toe part!
Around the ankles, these are a lovely smooth wrinkle-free finish.
The Bands: now the bands are just simple beautiful; intricate lace, a gorgeous shade of red and the right thickness on the thigh. I feel if the band was slimmer, it wouldn’t have the same effect. However if the band was larger, that would certainly need to be a show-off piece!
These have a double silicone strip at the top of them, which hold up so well throughout the day. I had no issues with it losing any tackiness or pulling away from the thighs easily. I do love the way they look!
I love them … Simple as. They are just a great pair, which do last you if you take good care of them and are effortless. They do their job well and look amazing!
